It sounds like Uber charges an up front fixed price fee with a risk margin built in. If the driver takes less time then Uber keeps this margin, however if the driver takes longer is Uber out of pocket? If so this is pretty much like all fixed price work.
Uber could make or lose money on each job.
Do they have to make them flawless? Or just better then the average human driver who is also buggy and unpredictable.
Anyone else wishing Taco would post here and end this once and for all...
I'm from the early days (although I waiting a long time before I created an account) and also read it about once a week.
What's sad is I have not actually found a replacement, I haven't left because there is something better. I wonder if Slashdot's problem is simply that its time has passed. While the sense of community is now lacking, the stories are pretty much the same as always. The comments quality has dropped, simply due to the lack of volume resulting with less on the Right-Hand side of the bell-curve.
I'm not sure there is anything that can be done to reverse it, however I will keep checking in every week. Earlier this year I even dropped in on k5.
The key word here is "peace".
His releases about the Australian government spying on the Indonesian President has greatly raised tension between the nations and seen violent protests on the streets.
This is one (of several poorly timed events) that have caused Indonesia to deploy naval assets in the waters between Australia and themselves (again not the sole reason, but a contributing factor).
Give him a medal for something else but a peace prize? How exactly is he helping to bring peace to the world?
By the time it go to this stage, it was much more then just regaining access over some routers. It was a full audit of the network and all devices to find what other backdoors he might have left.
Not sure if you have heard of their gaming appliances.... the Xbox and KINECT.....
End of the day Microsoft have been late to market on some key trends (going back as far as missing the early internet days). However the speed they have been able to catch back up to the market has been astounding. I would include their dedicated gaming tech as an example of this. The question is can they continue to do this in the future?
There is also a lot of Apple comparisons in the comments, and it should be realised that while the Apple share price has grown, they came back from a fairly low base. Ten years ago it was concievable that they were going under.
Microsoft is still a reasonable stock to have in your portfolio, I just wouldn't have it as your only stock.
OK... I've used this 6 times so far and everytime it has worked first time. I like it as a system (although it is confusing for elderly or tech illerate people). Basically you just have to print your own boarding card and then drop your bag on a conveyor belt.
Checking in with bags now takes 2-3 minutes. I am not sure why the jar in the test did not scan, but it was a pity it was done with one sample only (a small object). With a normal sized suit bag it has worked for me first time all 6 times I have tried and most importantly the luggage has been at the other end each time when I arrived.
Even in Aus we have more then one provider.....
I worked for a large department store in Australia. During training we were taught that of "shrinkage" (stock missing without a sale), the following was true:
- 20% was due to damage of goods
- 40% external theft
- 40% internal staff theft
Now that was stock and not cash from the tills, so if you add cash to the stock the parent might not be that far off. Plus this was in a large store where you where constantly surrounded by other people.
Fair enough for you, but I would rather live doing something meaningful. Raising my children.
